Week #1 – ADVENT: Faith – part 2 the season of “coming.” Many Christian traditions recognize the four weeks prior to Christmas as “advent”, which refers to the arrival of a notable person, thing, or event. We all anticipate the arrival of the baby Jesus who is bringing great gifts for us: faith, peace, love, joy. I prefer to think of this season as the “becoming” time…..it is the time when I celebrate the birth of these great qualities in myself. It is the time when I focus on being faith, peace, love, and joy in this world. Think about the power of that belief: WE, YOU, ALL OF US, CAN BE THE VERY EXPRESSION OF FAITH, PEACE, LOVE, AND JOY IN THIS WORLD. Just like the sun rises above the horizon in this picture, you too can “arrive” today and go forth as faith, peace, love and joy. Merry Christmas.
